April News Roundup

The month of April not only brought warmer weather and spring blooms, but also media attention highlighting individuals and businesses in the neighborhood. Below is a selection of stories and articles from the past month.

  • Since 1902, the Flatiron Building has served as one of the most iconic pieces of New York City architecture. Over the course of the building's history, few have done more to keep it running smoothly than Sunny Atis, the current superintendent who has worked there for 26 years. This month, Mr. Atis was recognized in a profile for the Wall Street Journal that examines his career and some of his best Flatiron Building stories (via The Wall Street Journal).
  • It's not news that the Flatiron District is one of the city's hottest tech hubs. As startups continue to flock to the neighborhood, businesses are responding to the new clientele. Read about how Cafe el Presidente and Birch Coffee in particular have become destinations for techies (via Crain's).
  • Following a similar theme, The Hollywood Reporter came up with their own list of the most popular restaurants for Silicon Alley's A-listers. Cafe el Presidente was lauded, along with highly acclaimed neighborhood newcomers Cosme and Upland (via The Hollywood Reporter)
  • The luxury residential tower known as One Madison appeared in two high profile stories. First, it was reported that media mogul Rupert Murdoch had listed his triplex penthouse in the building for $72 million (via The Wall Street Journal). Mr. Murdoch also owns an apartment on the 57th floor which it was reported that he plans on keeping. Only a week later, two other celebrity tenants, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, rented their apartment after just two days on the market (via NY Post).
